Jane’s Designer Yarn Patterns

I am an avid knitter who enjoys sharing the knowledge and experience I have gathered over 50 years of knitting. I am passionate about sharing useful tips that will enrich your knitting projects by sharing my views on knitting books, designers, shops and expos on my blog. I encourage you to check out my entries and share your knitting experiences, projects and interests. As a result of the great engagement I have received on my blog and ongoing dialogue with fellow knitters on Facebook and Pinterest, I have created this specially curated site which features knit kits personally selected or designed by me. It’s been great to work with a range of established and new designers, as well as yarn producers and manufacturers to develop my own brand of knit kits. As always, let me know what you think and get in touch with your ideas and designs. janesknittingkits.com
